My wedding is coming in 11 days. I was supposed to pay the remaining balance for Photograher. I haven’t heard from him, so I e-mailed him yesterday to set up a time. I haven’t got e-mail back from him, so I called his office. The line was temporary disconnected. I called his cell phone, it went to his voicemail but it was full and I couldn’t leave a message. I called another number that he gave me before, I was able to leave a message, so I did.
I am now freaking out. Not because I already paid deposit but I need a photographer on my wedding. I don’t know what to do now. Should I wait couple more days for response? Should I start looking for new photographer?

Wow, that’s not a good sign… 1) start trying to find someone else in case… 2) are his websites and blogs still up or active? 3) do you know “where” he is? like a physical location?

The fact your photographer is not getting back to you is not a good sign – but it seems like you started to try to get in touch with him yesterday, so I would say wait another day or so and if you don’t hear from him, start looking for another photographer. Keep a record of all communication attempts to him. Looking for another photographer may be a safe backup, but you don’t have to commit to anyone else if he writes back before the end of the week.
The fact his voicemail is full seems bad – it almost seems like some sort of tragedy may have befallen him and he’s not responding to anything. I HOPE that’s not the case.
What was the last contact you had with him? Does he have a blog? When was his last blog post? A facebook? Twitter?
I am also sending you a PM 🙂

Thanks for the postings. Nobody understand wedding unless you are bride.
The photographer’s wife called me and told me that he has been very busy with moving studio. Therefore, he has no internet connection and time to check his voicemail. But he remembers my wedding date. She said he will give me a call in couple of days.
It’s good that his wife called me back but I’m still worried. It’s almost a week away and I haven’t heard from HIM yet…….. Wedding is so stressed me out!!!
Thanks for all your support!!
